The internet rejoiced when Funko revealed it had acquired the Firefly license last year, only to immediately recoil at the horrific 'ReAction' retro toys they revealed earlier this year. Although these aren't the Legacy Collection figures of the Serenity Crew we're waiting for, these Pop! Vinyl figures are much better.
While there's not a single Tam in sight - or even a cutesy Shepherd Book - most of the cast is represented in this first wave. Check out the full roster below:
I love that Wash still comes with a little Dino toy. And this Jayne has his hat, unlike the ReAction version! Brilliant. I'll be twiddling my thumbs until we get the 6" Action Figures akin to Funko's delightful Game of Thrones toys, but for now, these are the Big (well, smallish actually) Damn Heroes our desks deserve.
The series will be out in time for Christmas too, with a December release date planned. Looks like you just found the best stocking fillers for your Browncoat friends and co-workers!
